Kai & Nox to challenge for Women's Tag Team titles on NXT next week


The WWE Women's Tag Team titles are set to be defended in NXT for the first time.

Women's Tag Team Champions Asuka & Kairi Sane will put their titles on the line against Dakota Kai & Tegan Nox on NXT next Wednesday. The match was set up by Kai & Nox defeating Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke in a number one contender's match tonight.

Asuka & Sane appeared on the video screen after the match, cutting a promo and saying Kai & Nox have no chance next week.

When the Women's Tag Team titles were introduced, WWE announced that they could be defended on Raw, SmackDown, and NXT. Sasha Banks & Bayley appeared on an episode of NXT while champions but never defended the titles on the brand.

Asuka & Sane became Women's Tag Team Champions by defeating Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross at Hell in a Cell earlier this month. Asuka & Sane have been heels since that match.
